I am big fan of The Digital Edge, and – apart from receiving a HUGE 3G card bill from Vodacom after finding out that I had enabled automatic podcast download settings – make a point of listening to each episode. Usually I find this works best when I am commuting to- and from Fish Hoek on the train. So when I got the call that Saul wanted to have a chat about this years digital Loeries, i was thrilled.
However … truth be told, when I did get the call it was at the end of a loooong week (two in fact), after we had been through over 170 individual entries. Not only that, but the very day before I had the honour of chairing the digital panel at The Grand Daddy Hotel in Cape Town (the first on-site finalist judging in almost 5 years). I was sitting in the Cool Daddy bar at 11:30am with precious few hours sleep. Then the call came.
After asking Saul to do his impression of “I know what you judged last summer” … (in that distinct radio voice of his) we settled into the questions. My brain quickly felt as if it was a phantom limb. In my mind the interview was a disaster. But not so … thanks to Saul and his team at Cambrient – the edit was kind.
Go have a listen to Episode 29: The Digital Loeries and see for yourself.
